A parent from a school I previously taught at gave me this recipe, and I think of that parent and child every time I make this potato salad. The salad looks beautiful, and the fresh basil vinaigrette keeps it light. —Dee Dee Calow, Warren, Illinois


  • 3 pounds small red potatoes, quartered
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 hard-boiled large eggs, sliced
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes


  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender, adding beans during the last 4 minutes of cooking. Drain. Transfer to a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, basil, parsley, salt and pepper. Pour over potato mixture; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  3. Stir before serving; top with eggs and tomatoes.
